French army, was born July 10, 1880. The family settled at Dijon, and after the premature death of the father, the mother devoted herself entirely to her two daughters, who, in return, were passionately fond of her and of each other. It was an ideal household pious, but not narrow-minded, cheerful, and evidently in comfortable circumstances. At the time of her first Communion Elizabeth learnt to overcome her temper ;she also made up her mind to become a nun indeed, the thought was not new even then. The wise mother did not oppose the child, but her education must be completed. An attractive proposal of marriage was but half-heartedly entertained by the mother, and not at all by the daughter. Instead of this, the love of our Lord grew steadily in the childs heart until it reigned supreme, and at length exclusively. The mother foresaw the ultimate issue, but demurred until the daughter had come of age, and then she hastened the sacrifice which must have been greater for her than for her child. The latter entered the Carmelite convent at Dijon, August 2, 1901; took the habit on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, made her profession January n, 1903, received the veil on the 2ist, and died, after an illness of eight months, November 9, 1906.
